Sounds like you either have a UTI, some general urinary tract irritation, or it's possible that your genital tissue was rubbed a little raw, thus the burning feeling and spotting.

Give it a day or two (and no sex before then). If it's still bothering you, or you start to find that urinating is difficult, or have any additional symptoms, then get into your gynecologists or clinicians office.

In the future, you can avoid any irritation due to friction by using plenty of water-based lubricant with your condom. You can help avoid UTIs by being sure to urinate both before and afert any sexual activity.

Regardless of what it is, too, drink *tons* of water and unsweetened cranberry juice with no added sugar, and stay away from the Cokes and such, for now. This will help you out if it's a UTI, and it won't hurt if it's not.
